Day 8 of 10 Thanksgiving Challenge | Life's Struggles
Without challenges, there'd be zero growth. A person's full potential never to be met.
Growing up poor meant going hungry some days and living homeless, sleeping in a station wagon with 9 other people taught me self-motivation! Perhaps that is why I continue to get up, dress up and show up. My own hard work has helped create a satisfying lifestyle.
In a post written several years ago that described myself similar to a Weeble because even though I may get down, I manage to pick myself up and move forward. Thankfully, a loving, thoughtful family stands beside me now, offering support when needed.
The attitude influences the path we travel. A positive, determined mindset will put into motion a fulfilling life. Sure, there will be let downs and disappointments. The ability to persevere, however, by creating opportunities, motivates successful outcomes.
Prioritizing means more time spent appreciating those efforts put forth. Thankful for past challenges, that have shaped who I am today because they made it possible to say that Wanda Can!
